Helmet gopro: top or side?

Wondering if anyone can share their experiences with the top vs side mount of a gopro. Either one seems kind of daunting with the drag at 150(ish) mph!

Pros/cons to each? I know the field of view'll be different; I'm more focused on the ergonomics of how bad/distracting the drag is between the two options.

Top!!! Because it gets the best view IMO. Where in the world are u going to be doing 150mph? Or even 100+MPH sustained where it would be an issue....
